And now.. More organ music!
Pretty odd recording of an 'Experimental Radio Program' which consists of 2 songs (!), the first is a totally overwrough and hoary version of "Onward Christian Soldiers" and then a nicer selection, a duet of a song called 'Beautiful Isle Of Somewhere' which would be nice except the duet is sometimes woefully off key. This program of music is repeated TWICE for us luck listeners, 2 x the organ music! 2 x the duet work!! Weeeee!!!
